3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An amber pour with light head and lace. I didn’t get much besides malt on the nose. The flavor has a distinct flavor of bourbon with a light vanilla kicker. A very sweet flavor followed by a tad of bitter on the finish. The carbonation is a bit agressive for me. This is really a pretty good amber. I was surprised to find that it was in fact an amber ale.

12oz bottle from my Brother in law - Pours amber with a short offwhite head. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, caramel, and some slight hops. Flavor is bourbon, caramel, vanilla. Slight hops at the finish. Palate is fairly smooth and easy to drink. Interesting but really not much better than average.

Bottle from shigadeyo; nose of whiskey, grain, and vanilla; clear copper witha small offwhite head; flavor like a VO and water, a lot of water, with some vanilla notes.More like a weak hard liquor drinl than a beer. I enjoy the flavors but it doen’t taste like any amber i’ve had! Drink this at a party and impress your friends with how much alcohol you can hold. Put a couple bottles in a big glass and chug it down!

This beer was very offensive. I have only had bourbon once or twice and while there was a lot of bourbon present in this beer it did not mesh well at all. I was with some people who were drinking jacobs best and I passed this on to them because I couldnt finish it. I got a lot of vanilla, bourbon, and not much else.

Pours a light straw color. Once I poured this it had a massive alcohol nose. After a couple of minutes it mellows out into a rounded cookie malt caramel and burlap bag. Reminds me of melted ice cream. Very bourbon tasting. Wow, crazy vanilla bourbon wood pepper. I’m really surprised by this. Nice and mellow. Nothing too harsh. A nice pick up I’d say.

Clear golden color, with a small off-white head. Thin nose that’s mostly broubon. Thin flavor is dominated by vanilla, with a hint of charcoal. Tastes like they took a very weak amber ale, added some vanilla extract and a shot of Beam.

First bourbon flavored ale I’ve had. Loved how it looked and smelled like bourbon with just a suttle taste of bourbon. Wish it tasted a little more oakey. Prost.
